Brick walls, Olympic rings suspended from chains, and gigantic tires are the only decorations that CrossFit Smithtown needs. Part of the no-frills CrossFit movement, the gym welcomes guests of all fitness levels to participate in its workouts, which change each day to continually challenge the body. Coaches lead their students through exercises that typically require either barbells or body weight—burpees, pull-ups, squats, and box jumps are but a few examples. And though the routines are meant to be intense, they are also scalable, meaning that beginners and advanced pupils can work out side by side in the same class. This sort of diversity is common, as the propelling force behind all classes is a strong sense of community.

Instead, they will challenge their minds and bodies with high-intensity exercises built around gymnastics and strength conditioning. As participants build powerful muscles and burn fat through running, jumping, and weightlifting, they forge a solid bond and community with their fellow gym mates.
